The Rory Peck Trust, a U.K.-based organization that provides support to freelance journalists, has launched a new program that offers free workshops on dealing with trauma and building resilience.

The workshops are aimed at freelancers who work in hostile environments or regularly cover difficult and potentially traumatic events. The organization is offering the workshops in a variety of languages over the next year. Registration is now open for workshops on January 11th and 13th, 2022 that will be held in English. They will be two hours long, and will be led by specialized journalist trainers.

Freelance journalists from all over the world whose sole source of income is in media, and who have been working as freelancers for at least the last 12 months, are eligible to apply. The deadline for applications is December 12.

The Rory Peck Trust is also launching a trauma therapy fund for freelance journalists that need support to cover the cost of therapy. The fund opens for applications on January 17, 2022.

You can find out more about both programs on the Rory Peck Trust website
